Founded in 1701 and now home to almost one million people, Detroit is one of the oldest and largest cities in the Midwest. Several music scenes were born here, including Motown and Techno. The automotive assembly line was also created in Detroit, completely changing the world of transport.

Visit Comerica Park for a true Midwestern experience. It is a combination of a ballpark and museum, theme park and home of the Detroit Tigers baseball team. Watch the team play while enjoying a hot dog provided by the hawking vendors in the aisles or enjoy a ride on the merry-go-round and Ferris Wheel. Visit in the evening to experience the field and surroundings lit up in the dark.

Take a trip to The American Motown Museum as it is a great piece of American music history and one of Detroit’s most popular tourist destinations. The hundreds of thousands of visitors to the museum each year are a great testimony to Motown’s legacy and is proof of the power of the music and the artists who made it. Stand in Studio A and experience the spirit of artists such as The Temptations, The Supremes, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as they have all stood there once before. The museum contains many artifacts, photographs and other memorabilia, which has created a real legacy preserved in time.

Car fanatics can’t miss the origin of the automotive assembly line – The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant. This is the birthplace of the Model T which may be old-fashioned now but was at the time the most popular car in the world. Walk along the same wooden planked floors where Henry Ford revolutionised the automotive industry as the building has been preserved in time down to the paint still peeling off the original walls.
